I believe Comatose is their second best CD, behind Invincible. I personally did not like Collide as much as most of you. I believe Comatose has a lot of great variety, unlike Collide.

If any of you are wondering, I have been a panhead since the first time I heard "Saturn!"

According to John Cooper Invincible is his least favorite album that they made.

I don't get what you're trying to say. You don't like Invincible and that's fine. But Rollercoast19 thinks Invincible is their best. Just because Invincible is John's least favourite doesn't mean it's not their best album.

True. I'm just giving John's (and Mine) view of it.

This is by far my most fav. album of theirs. I don't really know why, but I just like the songs more. My favorites are Whispers, Comatose, The Last Night and Rebirthing. CGR definitely needs a rawk on smiley.

Are we calling "Those Nights" a punk song simply because of the intro riff? ...cause I can't fathom why else we would call it a punk song?

this a pretty sweet cd, i like it a lot. i dont like it quite as much as collide but it is still a really good. my favorie songs are "better than drugs", "whispers", "falling inside the black", "those nights", and "comatose". it gets an 8 from me.

I know what punk is.
The song is punk, so says Skillet and also read the Reviews.

I don't want to get into an argument about what punk is, but that song isn't punk or even pop-punk. It's more of a pop-rock song with influences of pop-punk. Having a piano being the lead instrument in that song really turns off the perception of "punk".

"The near pop-punk sentiment of "Those Nights" marks the biggest change in the band's sound" from : http://www.jesusfreakhideout.com/CdReviews/Comatose.asp

"Skillet also tries some new things, such as Those Nights. I was reminded of modern Relient K when I first heard the song, with its pop-punk sounding guitars, piano-driven verse and shouts of “Oh oh! Oh oh!” "

from :http://www.sputnikmusic.com/album.php?albumid=12518

"The only weak point on the record, in my opinion, is the scarily pop-punk track "Those Nights," a song you’d expect to find on an album of the likes of Hawk Nelson or MEST. This track just seems to drag the album down, losing a touch of musical sophistication that I’ve always prided Skillet in having. The only other complaint is that at times, lyrics can seem a bit overdramatic, for want of a better word."
